Jennifer Lawrence’s “Mockingjay Part 2” Poster Causes C-Word Controversy (PIC)
The new Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 poster has caused a bit of controversy because it seemingly displays the C-word right smack dab in the middle. See the image at right and below.
The photo was tweeted out earlier this week from the film’s official Twitter account to promote 100 days until Mockingjay hits theaters. On the poster, Jennifer Lawrence’s character Katniss Everdeen is seen staring intently into the camera with red war paint on her face. The words “100 Days Until” is written across the middle of the poster.
At first glance, the image seems innocent enough, but with closer inspection it’s revealed that because of where the word “until” is placed on the poster in relation to part of the zero (0) in 100, it looks like it spells out the curse word “c*nt.” It took Gossip Cop a few seconds to spot the bad word, but once you see it, it’s hard not to notice it every time you look at the poster.
Gossip Cop reached out for a comment about the visual slip, but did not immediately hear back. And the tweet initially sent out from the Mockingjay Twitter account has been deleted. The movie opens in theaters on November 20. Check out the Mockingjay- Part 2 poster below, and tell us what you think.
